Description

This program is read by the author.

Like Fire & Fury, the gossipy real-life soap opera behind a serious show. 

When Barbara Walters launched The View, network executives told her that hosting it would tarnish her reputation. Instead, within 10 years, she’d revolutionized morning TV and made household names of her cohosts: Joy Behar, Star Jones, Meredith Vieira, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. But the daily chat fest didn’t just comment on the news. It became the news. And the headlines barely scratched the surface. 

Based on unprecedented access, including stunning interviews with nearly every host, award-winning journalist Ramin Setoodeh takes you backstage where the stars really spoke their minds. Here's the full story of how Star, then Rosie, then Whoopi tried to take over the show, while Barbara struggled to maintain control of it all, a modern-day Lear with her media-savvy daughters. You'll hear about how so many cohosts had a tough time fitting in, suffered humiliations at the table, then pushed themselves away, feeling betrayed - one nearly quitting during a commercial. Meanwhile, the director was being driven insane, especially by Rosie. 

Setoodeh uncovers the truth about Star’s weight loss and wedding madness. Rosie’s feud with Trump. Whoopi’s toxic relationship with Rosie. Barbara’s difficulty stepping away. Plus, all the unseen hugs, snubs, tears - and one dead rodent. 

Ladies Who Punch shows why The View can be mimicked and mocked, but it can never be matched.

Please never let this author narrate again! Ever!

This was a very well written book. However, the narration was so bad I nearly quit two chapters in. I’ve never heard male vocal fry before this audiobook. I swear I thought I was listening to a Kardashian. It’s a shame because the story is well told and thoroughly researched.

Book just OK...narrator stinks!

Not press with this book at all. They released all the good parts so what’s left with this just some story that I really don’t care about anymore.. AND once again the writer feels that they can do a better job of reading their book instead of paying for a professional to do it. Ramin’s voice is so annoying that it’s driving me nuts...I just can’t listen to it anymore! What waste of a valuable credit.

Worst Narrator EVER!

DO NOT BUY the audio version of this book! The narrator is the author and someone should have given him some sound career advice and told him that in no way does he have the voice or skills to narrate this book. His voice is terrible. He sounds like he's got a serious nasal congestion issue, his reading style is very s-l-o-w (almost sleepy) and he has a problem with enunciation and over all pacing. I'd rather listen to a symphony of fingernails on a chalkboard. I actually feel sorry for the author that no one had his back or cared enough for him to tell him he was making a HUGE mistake.

Incredibly interesting! Finished it in one day.

Was unsure because previous comments about performance but on 1.25 speed it sounded very listenable.

Juicy Story

The view is my favorite daytime talk show and this book is very juicy. However the narrator is not good. I wish someone else had read the book. I also kind of wish the author would have included more information on Jed, Candice, Raven and Michelle Years. But other than that the book is very good.

Dishy, but poorly narrated

Why are all the happenings of the last 2 years of this show in the epilogue?? This was a profound period of change and comeback and should have been taken more seriously.

The narration was very poor, but the content was dishy and concise, given the long history of the show.

Probably the most enjoyable read of the year

I've been a fan of the view since 2006. I wasn't planning on buying this book at first, but when I heard the leaked audio on Elizabeth quitting, I knew I had to get it. I listened to this book in under a week, the first time I've been able to finish a book cover to cover in over two years. Initially, it was just going to be a plane ride listen, but Setoodeh investigative journalism proved to be more than that. I am hoping and praying that he'll be able to promote the book Live on The View, where he'll no doubt be grilled and talked over - I'm sure he'd love it!

Fun story

Good story, fun. The narrator was terrible. mispronounced names. Read too fast, intonation needed work. would have been nice to go into the history of all the hosts.!

<br />filled with gossip but hard to follow

Unfortunately the author didn't do himself a favor by reading the book. His inflections were off so many times and the pronouns did not accurately match what was happening so it was hard to follow. The book itself jumped around too much in the chronology again making it hard to follow. I gave it 2 stars because it does have a lot of gossip about the view that I didn't know but I dont think I would recommend it.
